New suit. - Page 2

post #16 of 41
Excellent suit. The shoulders are great. If it's a two button, maybe the button stance is a bit high? If a three button (I can't make out the botton button) please button the middle button. I agree with the comments on the sleeves. I might also go 1/2" longer on the trousers. Very nice.

The sleeves and the trousers are too short. But otherwise very nice. The shoulder is beautiful. Dan

I like it just the way it is. Do not touch those sleeves. They look good.

RL Black Label can eat its heart out. But try to get the shirt sleeves shortened a little--they do seem too long, rather than the suit jacket being too short.

Nice suit. Thanks for posting the detail pics so we neophytes can see the hand stitching.

Alias, Are you talking about the tailor shop located in the 1st sub-level of the actual hotel or the one located in the arcade? I always pass by both when I go to the cigar shop in the hotel. Just curious, how did you hear of the tailor shop? Also, do you know of any other reputable tailors in Korea? Thinking of going bespoke if I could get one for a decent price. Thanks.

The shop is called "Sartoria Min," and technically it's on the hotel sublevel... but the entrance is outside, in the COEX mall. There are other tailors located in the hotel sublevel, among them Zenith, which charges more but has a lot more fabric selection, including Holland & Sherry, Zegna, and Loro Piana. Still, $1,800 is a bit tough for me to justify. Someone posted a favorable review a long time ago, however. And, as always, Itaewon gets my thumbs-down. Still have to try out Myongdong and see if I can't find someone there. I will now go and wash my shirt, then toss it into the dryer.

Looks great Alias, thanks for sharing the pix. At that price, it was a steal too. My tailor puts a topstitch on almost all of the seams on all of his suits. I'm on the fence about it. Looks very bespoke, but maybe a little gaudy. Meh, only those in the know will ever notice anyway. Oh, and in case you're taking a poll, I vote for adding .25" to the coat sleeves.

Huh...? Alias's suit and Black Label aren't even close, cut wise. The fabrics on each are entirely different as well. I'll post some pics of my new BL suit this week.

Lengthen the sleeves. They are clearly too short. The shirt sleeves look fine.
I'm with Johnny on this one.

No way, suit looks awesome. I like the sleeve length.

I like the suit, but notice where your eyes go first. With me, it's straight to the cuffs -- too much cuff showing. It looks like over 1". Even assuming that the sleeves were .25" too long (which I doubt, since the cuff of the shirt seems nicely fitted to his wrist size -- I bet it is a MTM/bespoke shirt), he'd still want to drop the sleeves at least .5". With that much cuff, the suit looks too stylized, when in fact it is a classic fabric and cut.

Nice job Alias, congrats. I think a slight reduction in the amount of cuff exposed by lengthening of the sleeves would enhance the harmony of proportions. Also it seems to me from the picture, considering it is a 2-button, that the buttoning point is more above the narrowest part of the waist than my ideal. Were you looking after this higher than usual, elongating button stance? Cheers.

Yeah, the button stance was my choice. It's a high two-button. I do this because I'm 5'4". And I don't wanna lengthen the suit sleeves. I should have worn a button-cuff shirt, since that shows less cuff than the french cuff I'm wearing. Stupid thin wrists...
